For businesses operating across multiple sites, traditional connectivity solutions are not always reliable.
When your business wants to communicate to a separate office and you have a traditional connectivity solution, your broadband connection and internal network carries your message through the public network. This is not a reliable, secure, or fast way for large scale business to communicate. Ideally, multi-site businesses need business-grade connectivity, ensuring security, speed and reliability.
Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPNs allow businesses to safely exchange data across separate sites and provides a connectivity solution that is cost effective, highly manageable and can quickly expand as new locations are added. It enables multiple networks or offices to be connected via a virtual network that is only shared with other authorised locations, making it inherently secure.
For businesses already running a WAN, using point-to-point circuits or an internet-based VPN, an MPLS based IP VPN is a natural upgrade path towards greater performance and security.
MPLS VPN benefits:
- Cost effective
- Safe and secure
The UK is becoming increasingly digital and your business can keep up by implementing software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions. Unlike MPLS, SD-WAN has a virtualised infrastructure, whereas MPLS is a hardware set up. SD-WAN can provide multiple network connections, including MPLS lines.
- Improves business performance
- Lowers cost
- Enables and improves cloud usage
- Increases business security
- Reduces complexity
Overall SD-WAN can enhance your business by boosting your networks performance, reduces overhead costs (such as hardware expenses and expensive routing), supports new apps and provides your business with the flexibility to access multi-cloud services.
